Let the larger angle be x and smaller angle be y 

Now, As we know the sum of supplementary angles is 180. so,

x+y=180.......(1)

Also given in the question,

x-y=18.......(2)

Now, From (2) we have, 

y=x-18.......(3)

Substituting this value in (1)

x+x-18=180

\Rightarrow 2x=180+18

\Rightarrow 2x=198

\Rightarrow x=99

Now, Substituting this value of x in (3), we get 

\Rightarrow y=x-18=99-18=81

Hence the two supplementary angles are 

99^0\:and\:81^0.
